Had lunch there today with a friend. Superb friendly service, good prices, and excellent food. Started with home-made crusty bread and foccacio with a tomato/garlic/nutty spread. We ordered the gorgonzola gnocchi and the penne with melanzanne (eggplant). Had their scrumptious chocolate pudding cake for dessert. All the food was fantastic - and home made - just the way our Italian mothers used to make it. Don't often dine out at Italian restaurants 'cuz we eat Italian at home. But will take the train again from San Jose to Menlo Park just to go back to Gambardella's!
